There is plenty to do at the K Diamond K Guest Ranch! Upon arrival guests can take a tour on a Polaris ATV Ranger.
There are miles of riding trails with scenic views on every ride. Riding lessons are given to guests upon arrival. We typically have about 40 horses including horses for the beginner as well as the experienced rider. For the health of our horses, we do have a weight limit for riders. All riders must be less than 225 lbs with your boots on.
You will feel a certain thrill of seeing white tail deer, coyotes or wild turkeys at anytime on the trail or in front of the lodge.
Also many migratory birds are flying to and from their Seasonal homes.
Take a leisurely pace of walking through tall timber trails, grassy meadows and feel the grandeur of the valley below. There is an ever changing view with each foot step. See the wide variety of color in the flowers and landscape. You will be amazed how
blue the sky can be.
Miles of back country trails and roads offer smooth pedaling for the adventurous mountain bikers.
The abundance of wildlife is the great attraction to hunters. White tail and mule deer and an abundant supply of Wild Turkeys in both Spring and Fall. Sporting Clays and Archery are available all 4 seasons. Check out the specific seasonal regulations prior to planning your visit. Our ranch is located in Okanogan East (GMU 204).
Try catching a colorful rainbow trout in the San Poil river that runs through the ranch. Or try your skill in several mountain lakes. Swan Lake, Long Lake, and Ferry Lake are nearby and Curlew Lake just a short distance from the ranch.
Observe our longhorns migrating through the ranch every morning moving to higher ground and returning to the meadow every evening. We have a long history of cattle drives, but are no longer able to include in our guest experience. This seasonal event of branding, doctoring, and moving cattle occurs in the Spring, pushing cattle high into the mountains for summer grazing, and in the Fall searching the hills to bring them home for winter calving.
Off Season Ranch Activities
While the season for vacations is predominantly during the warmer months, ranch activities go on throughout the year. As a working cattle ranch, we are open all year. Calves and foals are born in the spring, hay harvesting in the summer, feeding hay in the winter and timber harvesting as time permits. Roundups, fencing and maintenance is part of our lives. Each month with its colors and changes is unique in itself. No matter when you come, you are sure to enjoy a distinctive visit. A time to relax is every evening on the front porch watching the sun set or in front of the fireplace during the winter holidays.
